Breaking the cycle of poverty and injustice in Kolkata through community development, education, advocacy and physical support

JKPS has an extensive ministry, serving these slum communities and the most vulnerable, all done through the lens of Jesus' love for all. They run education centres, mobile medical units, micro-finance schemes, community development programmes and anti-trafficking work.
